Introduction to the Modular Study
We know the demands of life – work, family, church commitments – they all take up time and energy. Sometimes it is just impossible to commit to studying full-time. However, time and time again we hear ‘but I still want to study theology!’
You can come to SBC and study individual classes without a commitment to a wider course of study. You are welcome to take as many classes per term as you want…or as few!
There are a variety of ways to access modular study. If you want the full student experience you can register as a modular student and have full access to the class, materials and take on the assessments to attract university credit (although stand-alone classes aren’t a qualifications in their own right but can form part of a course such as a Certificate in Divinity). You can study a module for a one-time rate of £500 with any subsequent modules raising to approximately the pro-rata cost of full-time study – presently £1000 per module (we do have a rate for retired learners that keeps the £500 for subsequent modules unless you are hoping to graduate with a qualifications). If you would like to apply then please find out more about studying at the College and apply online here.
You can also audit a class – by this we mean fully participate in the class with access to the online library, the online learning environment (Moodle), and all class materials. However, you will not be registered for assessment / credit and therefore qualifications. We recognise some learners want to the full learning experience but without the stress or need for assessments / qualifications. The cost is likewise £500 for a first-time module.

For the Love of Learning
At the College we’re lifelong learners and we want to encourage that wherever we can. So if you’d like to take a class for the love of learning you can participate in the classroom environment without committing to assessments. You get all the benefits of the classroom discussion without the pressure of assignments and with a reduction in the price of modular study (£240 per 12 week module). You won’t be registered as a student and so access to materials is more limited, but you’ll get the same classroom teaching as everyone else.
